    Very informative and interesting post.
    I have been to India during my time working in Cruise Ships and definitely recommend it as a destination for the people who wants to travel to a “Different World”. India is different than anything we know, about this amazing country and its culture, and about all we know of all Asian cultures.
    I haven’t had the privilege to visit Meghalaya, as I was travelling mostly the main Coastal Cities, Mumbay, Cochin, Etc. Seems to me some sort of “Indian Tibet”. Very, very interesting.
    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Wow these places are amazing! Especially the Tripura Castle, wow and they have Chinese and Indian cuisine – my absolute favourite. This is a win for me haha

    These look amazing places to stay – I love the ones that are literally up there with the clouds. What amazing scenery too.
    I have 2 children aged 10 and 12; which do you think would be the best for families?
    On another note, is there anywhere in India you would recommend for families too – I’ve been a bit nervous about going there due to the food issues as one of my children has a sensitive stomach.

    • Tony says:

      For families the best place would be Mumbai, New Delhi, Rajasthan and you can find all varieties of food. It won’t be a problem.
